Cyndi Lauper, ‘Time After Time’ – The Lord Warddd Remix [SONG PREMIERE]

by | PopCrush

Pop fans — or at least anyone who has seen ‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’ — knows that Cyndi Lauper‘s ‘Time After Time’ is a ‘time’-less classic. And thanks to this fresh, modern remix of the track by the Lord Wardd, we can enjoy the ’80s jam in a whole new way.

The upbeat tune (which is included as a download when you pre-order the Cyndi Lauper tribute remix album ‘She’s So Unusual: REMiXED’ on iTunes here) boasts a steady, mid-tempo beat that gives the song almost a salsa-esque vibe. Of course, Cyndi’s iconic vocals are laid over the funky beat, giving us the perfect blend of old-school and modern.

One of our favorite parts of the remix? While we’re always partial to the chorus, this particular reworking of the song offers a pretty cool audio trick. When Cyndi sings the lyric, “The drum beats out of time,” the drum, clearly exaggerated for effect, does exactly that.
